I'm coming to Boston at the end of July for a conference (Siggraph) and will be sticking around for an extra week from 4-11 August. I've been to Boston 8yrs ago and done the main touristy things so this time I'm more interested in getting to know the local contemporary culture and people better.
I'm vegetarian and I'm interested in photography, sewing, art+craft generally, eco-friendly/green stuff and science/technology.
So I'm wondering if people can recommend:
- interesting places to visit,
- interesting shops,
- shops that sell fabric and patterns cheaply (patterns are quite expensive in the UK),
- good places for vegetarian food
And if that's not asking too much already, would anyone be interested in meeting up?
BTW I had a look at http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=101912.0
and I've put Magpie on my list already!
Any help would be appreciated. Thanks!
